The Dubai Watch Week promotes dialogues and conversations via its Creative Hubs. These are aimed at fostering creativity, championing innovation and celebrating the industry. The sessions are devoted to community-oriented talks discussing sparking ideas as well as sharing information like new product launches. Over the years, the Creative Hub has welcomed numerous limited-edition watch reveals, earning itself the position of being the only event outside of the renowned SIHH and Baselworld fairs to host international launches.
Here are the Creative Hubs from the upcoming Dubai Watch Week that excite us the most!
